Finding your best option
So, which is the best option for you?
The best option is one that:
• Is pitched at the right level and pace of learning
• Fits in with the number of hours you can study each week
• Matches your study goals
What is the LearningSpace?
Try over 600 free online courses from The Open University.
Available from introductory to postgraduate level, each takes between 1 and 50 hours to study.
Complete activities to assess your progress and compare your thoughts with sample answers.

Please note: We are in the process of improving the LearningSpace experience for everyone and in Autumn 2012 you can expect to see a brand new design.
As part of the change, we have looked at what works and what could work better and have decided to remove or replace some of the tools and features you may be familiar with.
Do you have a Learning Journal? If so, we will no longer be supporting this tool but, don’t worry, we have created a process to allow you to import into one of the world’s biggest open source blogging platforms, WordPress. You can find out more about this by accessing your Learning Journal and clicking on the ‘Migrate your Learning Journal’ link.
Are you part of a Learning Club? This will no longer be a feature of LearningSpace, so now is a good opportunity to dip in and back-up any content you don’t want to lose.
Forums will be replaced by the OpenLearn ‘Comments’ feature. If you have any forum posts that you’d like to keep, please log-in and back them up.
